- Did an early humor blog that he turned into a self-published book

- Recently decided to get back into comedy

- In college, ran the radio station with Ronnie James Dio's son

- Early heroes were Buddy Hackett, Woody Allen, Steve Martin

- Most comedians are loners

- Took comedy class; one week, Janeane Garofalo was guest instructor

- Hosts comedy nights now

- Dealing with cats in the audience

- Storytelling with embellishments

- Brian interviewed Marc Maron for his blog in the '90s

- The genius of SCTV

- Passing on your sense of humor to your kids
